2014 Favorites!

Hi guys! So today I saw Katytastics (on YouTube) video of her favorite books of 2014. If you want to watch it, here is the link:

So I decided that I wanted to make one of my own 2014 favorites too! I also will be using her categories.

1) The Best New Series
So I feel like the best new series is The Murder Complex series by Lindsay Cummings. I loved The Murder Complex. It was so amazing and wonderful. It made me cry, laugh, feel the feelings of all the feels..... yes. This was such an amazing story and I NEED THE DEATH CODE RIGHT NOW!! AHHHHHH!!!

2) The Best Installment in a Series
I feel like this award goes to The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancy. I loved this book. All it did was make me crave for the third and FINAL book in this trilogy. Can I just point out how much fun Evan and Cassie's relationship is? The banter.... I love it so so much!!!

3) The Best Series Finale
This award goes to, without a doubt, City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. Cassie really knows how to tell a story and how to rap it up. This book made me cry through the entire thing and I am so grateful that I have this series in my life. I loved this book and I am so excited to read all of her books.

4) Best Stand Alone Fantasy
Now I do have some stand alone fantasy books, but the only problem is that I haven't read them yet. I have read one but it does have companion novels. Oh well, I'll count it as a stand alone. So this award goes to Grave Mercy by Robin LaFeveres. I loved this book so much. It was so fun and funny and sweet and kick butt!! AGHHH!! I cannot wait to read the other companion novels.

5) Best Contemporary Novel
This award goes to How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff. I Loved this book so so so much. It was so cute with the romance and taught me so much about how family is so important and just this book was so heart warming and wrenching at the same time. This was an amazing story.

6) Best Fantasy
This award goes to Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas. This book.. UUUUUUUGHH. The plot line was such a page turner and the characters were so funny and sweet and kick butt!! I really loved this story and how it was told and Sarah, wow, you are one talented person.

7) Best Adult Book
Don't own any.... oops?

8) Best Middle Grade Novel
Now for this one, I didn't finish but when I was reading it, I was having soo much fun! So this award goes to Dormia by Jake Halpern and Peter Kujawinski... I am so sorry Peter, I probably spelled your last name wrong! Sorry!! I was reading this to my cousin and it was super fun and funny and weird and mysterious and cool! I really like this series and I definitely want to continue on with it!

9) Prettiest Book
Now this is a tie between These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner and Alienated by Melissa Landers. Here they are:
Aren't they just gorgeous?

10) Best Book Overall
The best book of 2014, according to me, is *drum roll* LUX BEGINNINGS BY JENNIFER L ARMENTROUT! This book made me laugh and cry and feel all nice and tingly inside. Jen can really tell a story with such grace and charm and beauty. This didn't take any time at all to become my favorite series. I am so happy that I read this and I wouldn't trade that experience for the world.


11) Worst Book of 2014
Now this award goes to one of my school books. Tangerine by Edward Bloor. I had many problems with this book, those mainly being:
Couldn't relate to the characters
No plot line that I could really see
Too many things all happened at once
They never answered any questions, just added more questions that were never answered.
I really didn't like this book.

12) Best Book to Move Adaptation
Mockingjay Part 1. Holy crap. I walked out of the movie theater frazzled. I was suprised about how perfect this adaptation was. In my opinion, this book needed to be stretched out longer. It needed to be more than 390 pages long. And I am so happy that this movie is in 2 parts. In the book, all we really saw was Katniss's point of view, but in the movie we saw President Snow, Gayle, Peeta, etc and that really did the book justice. We got to go into more detail that way and that was so helpful to the audience who hasn't read the book, and to the fans.

13) Most Anticipated Book to Movie Adaptation of 2015
MOCKINGJAY PART 2 PEOPLE!!! These book to movie adaptations are my favorite ever in the entire world. They are so faithful to the books and so awesome! I just.... ahhhh! I need this right now.

14) Most anticipated book release of 2015
Now there are so many books that I am excited about in 2015, but if I had to chose, it would be Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare. I - I'm so pumped I just-

So that is all for my favorite books of 2014! Thank you so much for the support! Love you all! Bye!

How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff

Hi guys! So I will be reviewing How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff. 
Fifteen-year-old Daisy is sent from Manhattan to England to visit her aunt and cousins she’s never met: three boys near her age, and their little sister. Her aunt goes away on business soon after Daisy arrives. The next day bombs go off as London is attacked and occupied by an unnamed enemy.
As power fails, and systems fail, the farm becomes more isolated. Despite the war, it’s a kind of Eden, with no adults in charge and no rules, a place where Daisy’s uncanny bond with her cousins grows into something rare and extraordinary. But the war is everywhere, and Daisy and her cousins must lead each other into a world that is unknown in the scariest, most elemental way.
This book was so amazingly real and so influential. It taught me so much about love and family and sticking together; and how that can really help you in so many ways. This was so funny to, I laughed so hard whilst reading this! Meg, you are so talented and such an amazing writer. 
I love you all so much! I hope you liked this blog post! 


Hi guys! So this is an announcement more than a regular post. I am so duper sorry that I haven't been posting. School has been hectic and its the holidays! So I have been busy with shopping, and family and school and UGH!! I am really sorry!
So there will be a post right after this.
I do love you all, I have just been super busy.
Love you!!

November Wrap Up!

Hi people of the internet! So today I will be sharing with you the books that I read in November! BTW I actually took this picture! HAHAHA 
Ok I know that there is still more November, but when it is Thanksgiving, I believe that it is the end of November. So pretty much all I read was Grave Mercy by Robin LaFeveres. I am currently reading How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff and it is really short! But I might not finish it this week because I am super busy. So if you don't know what Grave Mercy book is about, then you should read my review on it, it is in my older posts. 
So that is all for this post! I hope you enjoyed and I will see you tomorrow!
Love you!

Hello people of the internet! So whilst I am on Thanksgiving vacation with my family, I will not be able to post, but I have decided to give you one last post before I leave from Wednsday to Sunday! And for this post I will be talking about my response about Ebooks!
I honestly hate them, sure they are books except easier and more cheap! But personally I really love the feeling of a real book, the smell, the way you turn the pages and how real books ACTUALLY HAVE COVERS (I know they show the covers on the ebook but whatever)!!!! Have you noticed that borders and all the little bookshops that were so close to where you live have just vanished like *snaps fingers* that?! That is because of ebooks. Ebooks are slowly taking over the world and it is such a sad thought to think that there could be no more books in the world after that! I am willing to buy books online (REAL ONES) just because I love actual books! I am willing to pay 20 bucks (including tax and shipping) for that one book (my mom and dad actually pay not be BUT I PAY THEM BACK, TAKE NOTES CHILDREN) because I want to feel it in my hands. I don't care how much money it is, I will do anything just for a real book. I know my family is reading this and I am telling you know that I don't buy real books to annoy you or just for the heck of it, I buy them because I want to feel and read them and make sure that that money you paid goes to harperteen or penguin, etc (those are real book publishing companies) to support having a real book in my hand, not some overrated electronic disaster. And hey, at least I'm not buying drugs. 
So, in conclusion, I despise ebooks and how they are taking over the world. 
Thank you so much for reading! Love you!

Grave Mercy Review!

Image result for grave mercy
Hello beautiful book people! Today I will be reviewing Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers! Let us get started shall we?
Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others. Ismae’s most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?
I loved this book, I loved how *****s and *****s love was so unexpected and came so gradually and slowly so I applaud Robin for that! This book had some amazing break neck action too! It was such a great page turner! I fell in love with this story and this author! Robin has such amazing talent and I can not wait to read some of her next books!
Thank you so so much! I love you all so much! Bye!

Cover Reveal!

Hello guys! So I will be doing a cover reveal of This Shattered World!! I know that probably a lot of you have seen this already but at least some of you haven't! If you don't know, This Shattered World is the sequel to These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. The cover was out a long time ago but yea! Here it is:

Jubilee Chase and Flynn Cormac should never have met.

Lee is captain of the forces sent to Avon to crush the terraformed planet's rebellious colonists, but she has her own reasons for hating the insurgents.

Rebellion is in Flynn's blood. Terraforming corporations make their fortune by recruiting colonists to make the inhospitable planets livable, with the promise of a better life for their children. But they never fulfilled their promise on Avon, and decades later, Flynn is leading the rebellion.

Desperate for any advantage in a bloody and unrelentingly war, Flynn does the only thing that makes sense when he and Lee cross paths: he returns to base with her as prisoner. But as his fellow rebels prepare to execute this tough-talking girl with nerves of steel, Flynn makes another choice that will change him forever. He and Lee escape the rebel base together, caught between two sides of a senseless war.

That was the description! I hope you enjoyed this post! I love you all so much!

Gift of Charms by Julia Suzuki!

Hello book junkies! I am so sorry I haven't been posting! This wee has been super busy! With school and homework and yesterday I saw a play and went to IKea for a new bed and today I hurt my finger and EVERYTHING HAS BEEN HAPPENING! But anyway I will be reviewing The Gift of Charms by Julia Suzuki! 
In a secret land, far away from the habitation of man, dwell the world's remaining dragons -- hoping the dragsaur beasts have vanished forever. Here they try to live their daily lives, but all is not well and their talents are fading. Things change, however, when, from a strange egg, Yoshiko is born - a dragon with a unique destiny. Great adventure lies ahead as many challenges must be overcome, leading to a dangerous mission to the human world in attempt to return to the clans their missing magic! Can Yoshiko make it in time?
I honestly really liked this book! It was so interesting to read a book from a dragons point of view! This book intrigued me and was just super fun to read! The only problem was that it was a bit too predictable but there were also a lot of things I wasn't expecting. But yea... Julia you have such an amazing gift and I loved the story you told!
Sorry that this was so short! Thank you so much for all the views! I love you all!
